Worked the moves on a shunt then went for the lead. Thanks to Mike from the KMC for holding my ropes and supplying the mini towel to dry the dripping holds with. Didn't feel like E4 with micro cams protecting the crux.

Good gear in the break (size 0 cam is bomber) and small cam below protects the move upto it - smallest metolius. nice to finally lead it after finding the lower cam slot. :)

not as fluid as the previous attempts - two decent cams in break but could be hard to place on lead.
JamieSparkes - TR rpt - 05/May/10 with Nick

nice, enjoyable long moves but break a little damp.

One slightly pathetic slump on the gear at the break before getting back on it.
